    The best part of the image is that hes using expensive GPU's with a cheap (shitty) cooler. :roll:


    Apart from that, I'm sure the top two or three cards are dying a slow, slow death.

    You'd almost have to have 2 PSU's to do something like that right? The cards alone could draw as much as 1200W, and I wouldn't trust any 1200W+ PSU's out right now to power the cards and the other things consistently.

    they are designed to handle the heat.
    just because you have never had a video card with that much heat output doesnt mean that its bad.

    You guys should set all the negative "feeling" aside.

    I noticed the SLI bar is almost fill up, that's mean it's pretty much use all 4 GPUs.

    Not disagreeing but on the flip side who said it was good for the rest of your system?

    anyone that can afford 4 of these cards can most likely afford the water setup to keep them cool

    Or the broke the bank on the cards. I have seen both ways. I would never own a 4870 X2 unless it was under water. but lots of people own them and run them stock and then some expect to overclock.


    Almost 1.1Ghz core speed is enough for me.

    Did they post any results from where you found the pic Fit? Anyway, lack of air is common for sli/crossfire dual slot cards.
